    John Shelburne Cemetery Nancy and John Pamplin, their eleven children, and Nancy's mother, Jane Dunkin, came to Texas from Lauderdale, Alabama in 1837. They settled here the following year and established a plantation along Mill Creek. In 1842, John and his son-in-law, Alfred Minton, joined the army to turn back the invasion of Gen. Adrian Woll. The eight known graves at this site are for members of the Shelburne and Minton families, whose obelisks are the central features. The rock-lined gravesites serve as reminders of the area's pioneer settlers. Historic Texas Cemetery - 2002
